As a giver and philanthropist, Moonlight Air was the perfect fit for me.
I immediately fell in love with the mission and I love that they provide timely relief to those who are blindsided by loss and too often, tragedy.
I have a huge heart for helping people in need, so I'm proud to be a part of the solution to the growing problems concerning getting speedy relief to those who need it most.
The world is definitely in need of more light, and I feel that Moonlight Air is definitely a light shining in dark places during dark times in people's lives. The part that I play in helping them spread their message and accomplishing their mission, is truly my honor.
I encourage anyone who has a heart for humanity, to do their part, align themselves with Moonlight Air, and join this worthy cause.

When I had the great pleasure of meeting Martial Widemann and he told me about his wonderful mission with Moonlight Air, I fell immediately in love with his project. The vision Martial has, to provide aid within 24 hours worldwide, is amazing and desperately needed.
I was born into the 8th Generation of a well known Swiss Circus Dynasty which allowed me to travel the world with different Circuses and Big stage shows. Being a part of any Circus show, you travel in a very close knit community with people from all over the world. We accept and respect each other no matter where you are from. I have experienced first hand, the troubles certain people had to go thru with their family's in their diverse countries. I wish the world could get along the way we do in the circus world. This is why I love the vision of Moonlight Air.
It embodies all the love and care that I have known all my life.
I am very honored and grateful to be a helping part on this wonderful mission. My heart will be full of joy when Moonlight Air will have their first relief flight, as it can't get any better then to help safe life’s.

What I and my company StoryLab, Inc. find so appealing about Moonlight Air Organization is Martial Widemann’s personal and inspired vision — how he promotes simple and direct solutions to some of the many enduring problems that plague global aid relief, whether the disasters be natural or man-made.
By utilizing existing aviation transport technology with fresh, new approaches, I believe Martial and Moonlight Air Organization are now well positioned to make a dramatic difference in the effort to deliver sustainable disaster and development aid world-wide.
Having traveled the world on countless film productions, I know firsthand the difficulties of planning and logistics. Whether it’s transporting film equipment, crews, food supplies or power-generating gear, even the best made plans face unexpected challenges within the existing system of air transportation.
Recognizing this, Moonlight Air now offers the potential to be a game- changer through its energy, experience, and forward-thinking. That is why I’m so happy to be working with a leader like Martial Widemann, to help him promote his vision — so that new and better ways of aid delivery through air transport will soon become the norm.

In a world full of dangers humans and organizations are asked to assume social responsibility. Catastrophes and crisis challenge us consistently to do more and to actively help others. This is exactly the goal of Moonlight Air Organization. As a professor and lecturer, I got to know Martial Widemann as the creative and passionate brain behind this pioneering idea. 28 students from the HWZ University of Applied Sciences in Business Administration Zurich were tasked to analyze the project and were totally inspired. Regarding the efforts and dedication of Martial Widemann and his team they mean: „Martial Widemann personifies the organization like no other. During the numerous discussion we experienced how he lives for the project. Hence, it became our goal to transfer this passion to possible stakeholders.“ I fully support this statement and wish Martial Widemann and his team, that more people and organizations join this vision, which allows the organization to combine all the resources of various organization for faster and more efficient aid transportation.
